Hand-reloading requires repetitive grasping of cases. Small diameter cases are particularly difficult to hold. The issue is compounded by lubricants requiring more grip force. Add arthritis to the equation and the results are hands down a pain-in-the-brass! Stop that pain-in-the-brass with our new Case Holder!

  • Secure a wide range of cases for primer pocket work (head-facing) and, for most rimless cases, case mouth work (neck-facing)
  • Accepts hundreds of cartridges thanks to a wide range of collets
  • Case Holder design allows for reduced hand tightening to engage the collet
  • Case protrusion can be set by an internal adjustable Backstop

    I am so happy that y’all came out with this case holder. I had a bike wreck a few years back and my hands get fatigued really fast so case prep has been an issue. As soon as it came in I quickly did ten cases and no fatigue usually I am hurting after six cases.
    Thank you so much! The quality of workmanship is impeccable as always y’all knocked it out of the park.

      We’re so glad it’s working for you! Thanks for the kind words.

    Good stuff as usual K&M products are top of the line. As a kid I would have scoffed at the idea of this since I had gorilla hands back then . I can attest to the fact that time equalizes everyone. The case holder is well thought out and well executed.

    • Dave @ K&M

      Thanks for the review George. I’m glad we can meet a need! Yes, growing older is not for the faint of heart!

    Case holders are fantastic. They make primer pocket case prep with the smaller cases comfortable. No more cramped hands and fingers. Collets are available for just about any case you’re working with. Quality is everything you expect from k&m.

      Thanks for the review Mr. Nickles!

    In conjunction with using the Primer Pocket Uniformer and The Flash Hole Uniformer, this has to be the best invention/tool from K&M. In order to get a better grip on the cases while prepping the cases I used garden gloves covered with a rubber coating … worked good, yet still tiring on my hands, until the cutter of the PPU got a hold of my glove … some new cuss words were born at that moment.
    Thank you K&M for inventing and producing this tool.
